Digital Collections Highlight: John Mazza Historic Surfboard Collection

Monmouth College is not alone in creating digital collections of special materials and items unique to their library.  Currently, we started our collection with our yearbooks, catalogs, and student newspapers.  We thought that is would be fun to highlight other special digital collections of unique materials across the web.

Pepperdine University Libraries feature the John Mazza Historic Surfboard Collection in their digital collections.  The collection of surfboards follows surfboard technology and changes with examples ranging from the 1910s to the 1980s.
